    Emacs mac port formulae for the Homebrew package manager

    I'm a fan of using vanilla emacs (less to be confused about if something breaks as a beginner!) — and since you're on OSX, I personally think the railwaycat fork will make things a bit nicer.

  • emacs-builds

    Self-contained Emacs.app builds for macOS, with native-compilation support in nightly builds.

    Jim's builds are pretty good, I think: https://github.com/jimeh/emacs-builds

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • build-emacs-macos

    Build script for emacs and macos

    Here's the build script that I use. It is pretty dead simple. https://github.com/mclear-tools/build-emacs-macos
